Than having some suck up former Yankee beat writer proclaim Derek Jeter the best baserunner in the game.
There must be an equation that Bill James has (could) developed that would account for times on base (H+BB+ROE-HR)/runs scored (less HR) /SB (I hear the point that you don't have to be a great base stealer to be a great base runner, but it should count for something) productivity of hitters that follow you (probably OPS factoring out HR).
Remember when all the writers wanted annoint A-Fraud to the running hall of fame after he "stole" 3B against the Twins. Ugh.
Two words. Dave Roberts.
